President Campo Signs Partnership with Norfolk State University

By Brett Wilson | March 5, 2013

NSU's Dr. Tony Atwater and Regent's Dr. Carlos Campo make history as they sign the first formal partnership between the two schools.

Regent University president, Dr. Carlos Campo, signed a formal partnership agreement with Norfolk State University president, Dr. Tony Atwater, at NSU's Lyman Beecher Brooks Library on Wednesday Feb. 27. The agreement marked the start of the Bachelor of Arts-Juris Doctorate program between NSU and Regent.

The program will provide qualified pre-law NSU students of sophomore status a clear and concise pathway through the rigorous application process that law school entails. The signing signified Regent's commitment to guiding students through the law school admissions process. Together, the two schools are dedicated to offering NSU students counsel throughout the LSAT process, special campus tours of Regent as well as sessions with law faculty, students and admissions officers.

Campo hopes this agreement will be both encouraging and beneficial to NSU pre-law students seeking their future in law. He welcomed these prospective students into the Regent family.

"I don't want to hear that NSU doesn't have a law school," said Campo. "NSU does have a law school—and it's Regent University."

Jeffrey Brauch, dean of Regent School of Law welcomed the cooperation with NSU, and introduced Regent's philosophy of law to the students and faculty attending the ceremony.

"Lawyers are to be servants; people come to them when things are going wrong," said Brauch. "We teach our students how to speak wisdom into their lives, homes and families."

Atwater said he is excited to see the prospects this partnership with Regent could offer for the future of qualified NSU students participating in this program.

"I'd like to see renowned attorneys and even members of the Supreme Court of the United States come from this program," said Atwater.

Both presidents noted that this partnership will not generate preferential treatment, or relax admissions standards, but said that it will simply aid in alleviating the pressures pre-law students face when applying for law school.

Brauch said he looks forward to the potential generation of lawyers that may come from NSU, and hopes this partnership will give them the chance to pursue a degree they are truly passionate about.

"I can tell that NSU students care deeply about their community—that's in Regent's heart as well," said Brauch. "We're looking for servant leaders who can change the world one client at a time."
